Why would a teacher react the opposite way if 2 different students did the same thing?

Examples:

•Andrew and Mark are two different classmates; they're in the same class at the same exact time. Andrew asks Mrs. Smith after a lesson, "How you determine the angle of a triangle?" Then Mrs. Smith becomes furious and scolds Andrew for not listening. Then, Mark asks Mrs. Smith the same question; Mrs. Smith explains to Mark how to determine the angle of a triangle with a smile on her face while showing him with patience.

•Jennifer and Emily are two different classmates; they're in the same class at the same exact time. Jennifer starts to cry, resulting in her getting kicked out of class & punished just for crying. Months later, Emily starts crying; the same teacher who kicked Jennifer out of class & punished her for crying actually comforted Emily when she started to cry.

Is this unfair?
